Sunday Night Inspiration: Solid Gold

From designer flip flops to iPhone cases and sexy aviators, everything gold has come around again.

What better time to indulge in all things golden as the end of summer and the height of your tan?

Here’s a little roundup of a few of my favorite things in the royal hue – and a little turquoise too!

Daily Covet: Collection of Sunnies

As mentioned in many previous posts, I love sunglasses!

Not just because my poor sensitive eyes have to wear them rain or shine, but because I love how they can show off a totally different you just by changing them up.

I tend to get attached to one certain pair, but I love the thought of matching my sunglasses to my outfit – just as I would with my shoes.

So what eyewear would I like to add to my collection?

Here’s a roundup of some of my absolute favorite styles…

Daily Covet: Céline Havana Honey Sunglasses

I’ve always been a sucker for great sunglasses.

Maybe that’s because I absolutely have to wear them, rain or shine.

Yep, you read that right. It seems my eyes are especially sensitive to a gray day and start to water at the first unprotected glance of a cloudy sky.

So I am all about these Céline Havana Honey Sunglasses. I love the golden tortoise frames and the round lenses. I also love that they are so different from my usual cat’s eye or wrap around options.

There’s just something so Mr. Ripley about them…

Daily Covet: Chunky Cat Eye Sunglasses

So I was digging up pictures of hot Hollywood short-hair dos when I ran across this picture of Charlize Theron in the most fabulous sunglasses EVER!

Nevermind that I have a girl crush on this flawless woman, who happens to also have great style.  Seriously, who can make a gray scarf look that good?  But I digress…

I searched high and low for the maker of these sunglasses and then asked my super, search-happy friend to do the same.  Of course, it took her 3.2 seconds to find them.

Linda Farrow Chunky Cat Eye Glasses.  I’ve found them.  Now to buy them.

What?  They are $625?!

Soooo, onto the “Daily Covet” they go… sigh.

Daily Covet: Tom Ford Chic Shades

Sunglasses are probably my most favorite accessory.

Sunglasses are essential for me because my light-colored eyes are extremely sensitive to sunlight… and by sunlight I actually mean daylight.  Yep, even the grayest of days require sunglasses.

Last Christmas, my husband bought me my first pair of Tom Ford sunglasses and now I’m hooked.  So when I found these sophisticated Tom Ford gold-framed shades on Zulily today, I immediately added them to my “want” list.
